    Thank you for the warm welcome. I'm going to need some help choosing my mods since This is my first Toyota :) I'm a ford guy at heart but I sold my F-250 4x4 to get something smaller and more capable off road.

    Btw. Will this truck be able to tow my mustang ?

    Just did the brakes today. These trucks are really user friendly to work on. Took about 15 minutes for each side. easier to work on than my fords ;)

    Needed to trim the fenders a little to eliminate tire rub when turning.
